2012 HEITZ TRAILSIDE VINEYARD CABERNET SAUVIGNON, RUTHERFORD 

Tasting Notes from WINE ENTHUSIAST, “From a certified organic vineyard in Rutherford, this is a 100% varietal wine that impresses from start to finish, allowing room for a slight whiff of reduction and tar on the nose. Dark notions of coffee are interwoven between bright layers of cassis and red cherry around structured acidity and oak.” WINE ENTHUSIAST, Cellar Selection, 94 POINTS

Tasting Notes from JAMES SUCKLING, “Subtle aromas of plums and cherries with hazelnuts and cedar follow through to a full body. Plenty of wood showing in the mid-palate with a flavorful finish. Needs two or three years to come together. A traditionally structured Napa cab with focus. Drink in 2021 and onwards.“ JAMES SUCKLING 93 POINTS

Tasting Notes from WINE SPECTATOR, “Features an alluring mulled spice hint weaving around a core of gently steeped plum, blackberry and red currant fruit flavors. A light cherry wood note lines the finish while the fruit easily keeps pace. This is approachable now but there’s no rush.” WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS

Description

2012 HEITZ TRAILSIDE VINEYARD CABERNET SAUVIGNON, RUTHERFORD

Heitz is an absolutely historic winery that continues to craft wine in the same traditional and age-worthy style that they’ve become revered for almost 60 years. Each decision made at the winery, from when to pick; through the entire fermentation and aging process are purposefully made to guide the wine into a style that will stand the test of time, rather than be flashy and forward when consumed young.  Why? You’ll find the answer in a bottle of 2012 Heitz Trailside Vineyard Cabernet… After resting for 3 long years in 100% oak, followed by another 3 years inside the bottle, the 2012 now awakes with penetrating dark fruits, powerful structure, unending depth and remarkable detail.  With the new 2013 vintage checking in at $125/btl, the 2012 is a stunning value, that shouldn’t be missed at $79.99/btl.

The Trailside Vineyard, located in the Iconic Rutherford AVA, made it’s debut in 1989 and they’ve produced a bevy of high-scoring Cabernets from this vineyard ever since.  The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and made it’s entrance from one of Napa Valley’s most desired vintages. I highly recommend saddling up and securing your case…
